Friday night will be an impactful one in the Coupeville High School gym.

Wolf basketball teams, playing at home for the first time in two weeks, host Friday Harbor in bouts which will have a big impact on potential playoff seeding for the varsity squads.

Things kick off with the girls’ varsity playing in the CHS gym, and the JV boys across the hallway in the middle school gym, with 4:00 tipoffs.

The boys’ varsity and girls JV teams inherit the floors at 5:30ish.

But the games are just a part of the events.

Youth cheerleaders perform at halftime of the varsity boys’ game, capping several weeks of preparation.

Throughout the afternoon and evening, the focus will be on the annual Coaches vs. Cancer fundraiser, renamed Coupeville vs. Cancer this year.

Raffle tickets ($1 or donation) will be sold, offering supporters a chance to win goodie baskets made by the CHS cheer team. There will be drawings at halftime of both varsity games.

T-shirts and silicone bracelets commemorating the night will be available for donation. Any extras after players and coaches receive theirs, will be offered for free.

There will also be a poster in the entranceway to the gym that fans can write on to honor those “that are fighting/have fought/have lost” the cancer battle, said CHS Athletic Director Willie Smith.

This year’s event is focusing on all forms of cancer, with pens representing all the cancer awareness ribbons available at the sign-in table.

All money raised will be donated to the V Foundation for Cancer Research, which was founded by legendary college basketball coach Jim Valvano.
